A Face for Radio

A Face for radio

A Face for radio

This girl is undoubtedly beautiful on the inside but in this day and age I would imagine she would be considered to have a good face for radio. I think it’s the pouty bottom lip and the mismatched eyes. Although there is nothing wrong with that as I have mismatched eyes and a somewhat pouty bottom lip (especially when sulking) although I, of course, am stunningly good looking and my asymmetry is part of my charm…

More and more these days though, the less fortunate (i.e less photogenic) men and women of the world (‘interesting looking’ as my mum would say) are being moved aside and being replaced by identikit facsimiles of some supposed beauty. Just take a look at FHM’s hot 1oo sexiest women. Now I haven’t read FHM since I was about 14 but its pretty difficult to miss their 100 sexiest list as it has been over numerous websites – including the ever respectable BBC. If you take a look at the list though can you really say all the women on there are the sexiest on the planet? Sexy must definitely mean something different from when i was a lad. It now seems to mean that all you have to do is be seen on some fluffy reality TV and that’s it job done.

I should probably stop now, turn on the radio and get back to painting as there is a possibility I could be ranting all day…

The Manx Missile

The Manx Missile

We only usually come home once or twice a year but this year we had a wedding party to attend so thought we’d try to get some work done at the same time. Since we did a small screen printed version of this picture a while back Mark ‘The Manx Missile’ Cavendish has won ‘BBC sportsman of the year 2011’ so we thought it deserved immortalising life size and in colour in Cav’s birthplace – the wonderful Isle of Man!

On second thought perhaps we should have reworked the picture to include some reference to his girlfriend Peta Todd as she has obvious charms and is clearly quite photogenic…

You can trust me. I’m a police officer…

Having just read the oh-so-scandalous news that the policeman who pushed over Ian Tomlinson during the G20 riots will not face charges over his death I thought it a good time to put forward a couple of bits of our work which reflect my current feelings on the matter. The fact that he is an ‘elite‘ officer apparently trained for public order containment should surely stand for something but obviously not. No wonder this hardly makes me feel safer…
